Whether a first time purchaser or a serial acquirer, we have extensive knowledge and experience to assist in all aspects of the acquisition process.
Raising Finance for Acquisitions
We have extensive relationships with high street banks and traditional funding routes, aiding clients to secure funding through factoring, invoice discounting, mortgages, overdrafts and cash flow loans.
There are also times when the traditional funding routes from high street banks are not available to businesses. We have relationships with alternative finance providers (of whom businesses are often unaware) which have different investment criteria and can therefore provide an alternative solution.
Where the size of the acquisition target requires an injection of equity funds (coupled with additional experience and resources) we can make the necessary introductions and lead the business through a private equity raising process alongside the acquisition process.
We approach funders on the business’ behalf and negotiate terms to drive the best deal. We project manage the due diligence requirements of the funder and work with lawyers to negotiate security documents to allow the team to focus on the day to day running of the business.
